The Las Vegas Raiders must win these five games if they want to make it to the playoffs in 2021.

#5 Week 1 versus the Baltimore Ravens

#5 Week 1 versus the Baltimore Ravens

The first test the Las Vegas Raiders defense will face this season is the Baltimore Ravens, who have Lamar Jackson and a very high-powered offense at their disposal. Unfortunately for Las Vegas, that means stopping Lamar Jackson from slinking out of the pocket and pressuring him as much as possible.  The Ravens also have Gus Edwards and J.K Dobbins, who combined for over 1000 yards on the ground last season, which will be another difficult test for the Raiders' defense.

Derek Carr and his offense will also have to deal with one of the best defenses in the league and somehow string strong drives together to put points on the board. If the Ravens defense can double team the Raiders' best wide receivers and keep Jacobs from making progress on the run game, it could be game over for Vegas in week one.
